WASHINGTON – Metro will not be resuming service Tuesday morning because of Hurricane Sandy. MARC and Virginia Railway Express have announced that all service has been canceled for Tuesday.
Metro, MARC and VRE suspended all service Monday ahead of Sandy’s arrival.
The Metrorail and Metrobus systems stopped running at its normal time Sunday night. Metro also canceled MetroAcess service until further notice.
Metro says service will be restored only when conditions are safe to do so, and the agency has had a chance to assess damage and weather conditions in the morning.
The last time Metro canceled service was during Hurricane Isabel in 2003.
MARC says it will update passengers on its website as the storm’s progression changes.
The Maryland Transit Administration has canceled MTA commuter bus, Batlimore subway, light rail and mobility/paratransit service through Tuesday.
